I'm Laura, Former Technical Recruiter, coffee aficionado, dog lover, and wanna-be surfer.
One Day, I woke up and decided I didn’t want to go to work. Not like the Sunday scaries or what I call the ho-hums. No, I wanted to quit my job and my recruiting career altogether. I was miserable, and it finally hit me—I wasn’t coaching; I was chasing money.
After being a technical recruiter for over two decades, I was burned out. I was unmotivated and unchallenged. I knew I needed to get to the bottom of the feeling quickly.
So I rolled up my sleeves, took a deep dive into my strengths, and examined what I loved about my recruiting job. It wasn’t matching people with employers — it was counseling women on how to tell their stories, demonstrate the impact they can make, and nail interviews with confidence. That’s what filled me up!
What I uncovered was…. I was meant to be a CAREER COACH
I watched qualified women candidates make the same mistakes over again when it came to networking, interviewing, leaving money on the table when negotiating, and everything in between.
My life purpose is to help women feel prepared, confident, and assured they are putting their best foot forward.
After two decades of technical recruiting in HR, I’ve read thousands of resumes and hired hundreds of candidates; I understand the employer’s perspective for resumes, interviews, and negotiating.
I know what gets results and what doesn’t.
As a Career Coach for women in tech, I help you gain career clarity, build self-confidence, create clear, actionable job-searching strategies, and get hired.
- Build an impressive personal brand so companies can easily envision the impact you will make
- Create and leverage a strategic and effective networking strategy
- Interview like an executive, so you get to the offer stage
- Feel confident negotiating a salary you deserve without leaving money on the table
- Learn to have an executive presence (even if you’re not yet an executive)
My job is to create your unique personal brand that tells the story of your professional development so that you stand out in the sea of applicants and hiring managers are chomping at the bit to hire you.
